The difficulties which the enemy bad endeavoured to lay in the way of the operations of the second army are now removed. Nothing now standa in the way to prevent these two armies, with their united strength, from preparing for the swarm of their enemies the fate with which every desolating conqueror has ended, so far as the history of nations has taught us. This praise-worthy battle we can consider as the pledge for further brilliant deeds.
